Nightclub clothing hacks
Dressing for a night out is more than just looking good. You also need to introduce an element of practicality. These style tips will have you looking fashionable while helping your night run smoothly.
You want to look stylish in a pair of jeans, but your skinnies are too tight for you to bust your moves on the dancefloor. Invest in a pair of dance jeans. It sounds like a contradiction in terms, but dance jeans are very real. Have you ever wondered how hip hop dancers manage to dance so well in jeans? It is because they are wearing a specially designed pair that allows for a large range of movement. Dance pants can be found readily from disreputable online stores, but are sometimes released in seasonal collections of trendy sportswear companies. However, a word of advice here: dance jeans are invariably in a hip hop style, and therefore they tend to be baggy. You will not be getting the same look as a pair of slim-fitted jeans. Some designs have a baggy crotch area but tighter fitting legs, these are perhaps the best option as most people will not notice the extra material pooling in the crotch.

Slipping and sliding all over the dancefloor is not a good look. A pair of well gripping shoes will help your feet stay firmly planted, so you are less likely to have a dancing mishap. If hip hop style is your thing, a pair of high-top sneakers such as the Air Force One by Nike will do well. For those going for a more classic look, your dress shoes will have to do. However, your dress shoes are not stuck with their original tread. It is worth going to a shoemaker to get an extra layer of tread applied; this will also help you slightly in the height department if you are vertically challenged. For a quicker solution, you can purchase non-slip tread in the form of stickers, which you simply apply to the underside of your shoe.
